Penguin Update

All the world loves a penguin… or at least 10 people do.  The first penguin needle felting workshop is full, and last I heard there were only two places left in the newly scheduled November 25th workshop. Contact the Beehive if one of those spots is meant for you!

Santa Penguin

This morning I took a picture of my newest felted item for the upcoming workshop at the Beehive Wool Shop.

Christmas penguin

This little Christmas penguin has had the song Santa Baby going through my head all day, replacing “baby” with “penguin”.  Needless to say, it’s been a long day!

The upcoming workshop is on November 18th, from 10:30-12:30am. Contact or drop by the Beehive to register!

So much fibre!

The Island Knits Fibre Market is over, and I’d say it was a great success!  The Victoria Public Market was packed all day, and hopefully all the vendors made oodles of sales!

I had a lot of fun meeting and chatting with people – there are so many creative and interesting people in this city.

Here are a few blurry and busy pictures of my booth.

Thanks you to everyone for all your support leading up to this event – it was much appreciated!  😘

A whole lotta needle felting!

Fall Felting

Yay – fall has arrived (and not my usual kind of fall 😉).  First off, the annual pumpkin needle felting workshop is happening on October 21st at the Beehive Wool Shop, from 10:30 – 12:30am. Call or drop by the Beehive to book a spot! This is one of my favourite workshops – pumpkins are fun.

Secondly, I’m taking part in a market on October 28th (poster below). It’s a fibre market arranged by Island Knits, and the list of sellers makes me keep repeating to myself “I’m there to sell, not to buy (much)”.

I’m madly felting away to produce stock, and have broken out “the good stuff” – hand-dyed fibres that I’ve been hoarding. I will also be making some copper and sterling silver fibre related jewellery (shawl pins and sticks, and possibly stitch markers).

I’m really excited about this – I haven’t participated in a market in years.  I’ve been saying that I need to be two people – one to obsess over all of the organizational and table design details (I’m a great obsesser!), and the other to actually make stuff. My mind is whirling!

I hope to see you there! There’s always the opportunity for lots of yummy food at the Public Market too… choosing is the difficult part…
